The creation and management of geospatial data is always tedious requires huge budget, time and manual efforts. Therefore, the future of several important services including location-based services and disaster information system, which need geospatial data remains a matter of concern. Expert geoportal system (EGPS) is a tool based on a sophisticated approach for providing diverse geospatial services to a naive user without creating its own database (i.e. geospatial database). EGPS avoids the unnecessary efforts of creating and managing a database, which not only requires enormous amount of money but also manual efforts. This paper presents a step-by-step approach for designing and developing a system that uses third party authorized data and web services for providing diverse geospatial services to the naive user without creating and managing its own database.
